Default What happened, and what'* going on

The answer is, we lost our hosting (info from Jeff), and we're trying to figure out where we are.

What we DO know:

Database is restored to Nov 20th.
Techinfo is not working yet

What we DON'T know:

Where the new host is
What impact lots of activity may have on the site/server

We've locked the forums to re-group and get re-organized. Many of you will notice how many changes/additions must be recovered. We're a bit overwhelmed right now, but should be unlocking very soon. Please have patience.

Again, Kudos to Jeff.

Correct Bill...

We all seem to be landing at MNBonnevilleClub.com, they have been most gracious to all lost members and we seem to be settling in nicely.

Keep an eye on BonnevilleClub Notices and on MNBC for any updates as released.

Indeed, watch for the grand re-opening.

The good news: the site is being served on a brand new dedicated server, considerably faster than the previous one.

The bad news: a lot of data was lost after my previous hosting company disappeared overnight. The current state of the forum reflects how it appeared when I pulled a backup on November 21.

Thanks to everyone for hanging in there!

Jeff

I can't say this enough. Jeff and MNBC really came through for us. As did BA. And everyone.

BonneMeMn posted this to help us.....please read here for now while we sort this mess out:

Yes, the board is a mess. Staff will continue to work it over through the day. We lost all of our recent changes. Techinfo, Registry, and PM'* work, but nothing in those categories that was added after Nov 20th remains. Those will have to be re-entered.

All the new forums have been added back in per my written notes from last month. If you find any mistakes in the forums, PM an Admin.

In simpler terms, imagine stepping back in time to Nov 21. That'* where we are for the most part. Posts, post counts, PM'*, new members, etc.

Another thanks to Jeff. He did alot of work behind the scenes during mid-terms. Gordy, David, and Jason at MNBC. Thanks for putting a roof over our heads. Jason also helped with some proofreading as the forum was 're-created' tonight.

Christine. Thanks for your company and help tonight too. It was invaluable. You checked some things we just didn't have time for.

Al and Mike......thanks for putting out the effort on BA for us. That site is really coming together.

We'll get this sucker looking right over the next couple days, and then reward you all with a few surprises
